Atlanta is a city full of culture, and everyone knows that means lots and lots of great food. From Spanish to Ethiopian to Italian, there are tons of great ethnic places to dine in the ATL. If you like Mediterranean food, another up and coming style of cuisine, Café Agora is the place to go. This restaurant brings together an eclectic and authentic mix of Turkish, Greek and Mediterranean cuisines. With two locations in Buckhead and Midtown, its menu features every Mediterranean dish you can think of: an array of falafels, tabouli (a salad made of herbs, couscous, tomatoes and cucumbers), multiple kinds of kebabs and gyros, and that’s not even including the desserts. They feature a variety of baklavas (a pastry made of nuts, syrup and honey), ladyfingers, and rice pudding. Their menu includes a variety of both meat and vegetarian options, so don’t worry if you have any dietary restrictions. The Midtown restaurant is located near a club, making it a great venue for a quick bite to eat before a night out dancing. In fact, they will soon be moving to an even bigger and better location just a block away.
Cafe Agora seems to be popular within the Oxford community as well; freshman Ravila Bhimani said, “The food there is to die for! The people who work there are extremely friendly, always giving you a huge smile as soon as you walk in, and their baklava literally melts in your mouth. They always give you a free hummus or dessert, and it’s great for a late night snack because it’s open until 4 AM.”
While the price is a bit more expensive, Café Agora has a diverse and mouth-watering menu, great quality service, and an ideal location in the heart of Midtown.
